Highlights of the week include but are not limited to:
We hit the triple digits this week. High of 105. Gonna get that tan on!
That moment when we are in a lesson with adorable little Jose and I say "holy cow" in response to how far he's come and he goes, "hey, no holy cow!! Remember the golden calf?!" Bad dad joke meets corny gospel joke equals Jose and I love it.
My favorite part about being at YSA is reading the Book of Mormon with investigators and praying right smack dab in the middle of the college campuses. It's so much fun. We've really been hitting it hard with the Book of Mormon with everyone we meet with, and it's been awesome. It doesn't have to be stuffy and boring to read. We visited a less-active who hasn't touched her scriptures or prayed in years. We read half the intro page together and by the end she's like, "Holy cow I am so excited to read the Book of Mormon!" and I'm just like "yaaaaas!"
We were supposed to meet with our friend Francis this week. He texted us saying he had to run an open mic talent show and we were like ummmm can we participate?!??! Perfect opportunity to show the peeps that Mormons are normal too. I got to sing a little jiggy about church and Sister Hayes danced on her head. Spirit was there for sure.
We have a lot of new faces in the ward. Testimony meeting yesterday was totally lit. It was actually uber spiritual but here were some of the gems as well:
"Yeah if you obsessed with the Kardashians you got somethin wrong witchu. They got somethin wrong wit them. They ain't got da gospel. They got darkness. Yeah Imma step off my "Soap Box"."
"Don't just try, just Nike!"
"Leave a sparkle behind everywhere you go."
"I'm a a vegan. If we were supposed to eat meat we woulda been born with fangs but we ain't. Stay blessed. Stay loved. God bless. Always." *slowly walks off the stand*
Honestly I felt blessed to be there. I love the YSA ward.
